Before & After School Program (BASP)
The Beddington Heights Before and After School Program (known as BASP) operates as a non-profit program under the umbrella of the Beddington Heights Community Association. It is a licensed and approved childcare program with childcare subsidy available through the Government of Alberta for qualifying families.
We are a recreationally based licensed childcare program that caters primarily to Beddington Heights Elementary and St.Bede Elementary. We are located on the same street as both schools and this allows us to walk children both to and from school for each component.
We pride ourselves on providing quality childcare, and believe that a program should incorporate variety, challenge, and age-appropriate activities to best be able to meet the needs of all children.
In order to accomplish this, we split the children into separate rooms based on grades. Kindergarten children have their own room, Grades 1-3 are together, and Grades 4-6 are also separated into their own room. This allows us to program age-appropriate activities/crafts/games and challenging options in addition to ensuring the toys and play centers are also aligned with the ages using them.
